Perspectives of Dylan DeClerck, Event Consultant
Post 4 of 5 in this series.
Although Princess Cruises does not have the largest ships in the world with passenger capacity upwards of 4,000 or 5,000 people, they are considered one of the four cruise companies in the mass/contemporary market. The contemporary market also includes Carnival Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, and Royal Caribbean International, which can accommodate the largest number of passengers on their ships.
For the 2017-2018 sailing year, Princess Cruises will utilize 18 ships to sail to destinations ranging from Alaska, where the company has its strongest presence, to the Mediterranean. The largest ships in the Princess Cruises fleet host 3,560 guests at double occupancy, which is perfect for groups that are looking for specialty restaurants, many dining options, meeting and conference space, and a variety of high-quality entertainment. On the smallest scale, the Pacific Princess ship accommodates a maximum of 672 guests. This type of ship is ideal for the group the wants to have a more intimate experience with their attendees.
Despite the generalizations made above, every group will have unique needs that are difficult to determine if they can be met without clear communications with cruise experts who understand the individual ships. Ensure every accommodation your group needs fulfilled is met; count on Conference Event Management to help navigate your next cruise.
